Yahoo is no stranger to streaming live sports, and starting this week it's adding hockey coverage. The company struck a deal with the National Hockey League (NHL) to offer live action from up to four out-of-market games in the US through the 2016-2017 season. The NHL "Game of the Day" will be available to stream free of charge (no cable subscription required), complete with in-game highlights for each matchup. Yahoo will also show "Best of the Day" and "Best of the Week" highlights alongside condensed games under the terms of the deal. What's more, Yahoo Sports will still be the NHL's official fantasy hockey partner.

Last year, Yahoo became the first site to nab exclusive streaming rights to a regular-season NFL game. The company also has deals in place for live and on-demand coverage of Major League Baseball (also labeled "Game of the Day") and PGA Tour golf. Yahoo's struggles are well-documented at this point, but that's not stopping it from expanding its streaming library, especially when it comes to sports.
